Yesterday I was at the grocery store without the rest of the family. Sometimes I like to do things on my own…crazy I know. I went to the cereal aisle and there was a woman putting tons of boxes of Rice Krispies into her cart. I thought she was going to have a Rice Crispy treat party.
I got one box of blueberry Frosted Mini Wheats and she turned to me and said, “You know that cereal has a blue dye in it that causes learning disabilities.”
And I said, “Oh so that’s why you are getting so many boxes of Rice Krispies?”
And she said, “No, my son wants to win a free xBox and to do that you have to play a game that involves buying a ton of Rice Krispy boxes.”
I really care about Princess A. I put sunscreen on her and give her lots of fruits and vegetables but sometimes I just want to scream when people talk to me about the things that may or may not cause problems. If I spent all my time worrying about everything that might hurt or kill me I would never have time to live. It’s stressful enough being a parent especially because the doctors and experts change what is good for us all the time. Juice was good for kids now it’s bad for kids. My mom was told to put me to sleep on my stomach and I was told to swaddle my daughter and put her to sleep on her back. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming to say the least. SO, unless you know something to be 100% to be true be quiet and let me enjoy my blueberry Frosted Mini Wheats in peace!
